CK Ranganathan (CMD, CavinKare) always believed that disability is never a handicap and people need to change their attitude to provide opportunities to the physically challenged people to prove themselves.
CavinKare takes an active interest in supporting organizations working on social issues. CK Ranganathan is one of the founder-members of the Ability Foundation – an NGO working towards the rehabilitation of the disabled. His belief took a firm shape when CavinKare teamed up with Ability Foundation, led by Ms. Jayashree Raveendran, an NGO that is primarily working to integrate persons with disabilities into mainstream society; instituted CavinKare Ability Awards to celebrate the exemplary spirit of rare breed of individuals who have risen above their physical limitations to display that attitude is everything. The annual awards which has been organised for 9 years in succession till date has gained enormous recognition. Many celebrities, social workers, civil servants, and people from all walks of life contribute to the cause by witnessing the awards and also contributing in the manner they desire towards the just cause.
